Here are a few not-so-scary songs for your week!

Five Little Monsters 

(count on fingers or toes)
This little monster has a big red nose
This little monster has purple toes.
This little monster plays all night.
This little monster is such a fright.
And this little monster goes "Tee-hee-hee"
"I'm not scary, It’s just me!"

Monster, Monster 

(like “Teddy Bear Teddy Bear”)
Monster, monster, turn around.
Monster, monster, touch the ground.
Monster, monster, reach up high.
Monster, monster, squint your eyes.
Monster, monster, show your teeth.
Monster, monster, stamp your feet.

Horns and Fangs 
(Sing to the tune of “Head, Shoulders”)
Horns and fangs, 
knees and claws,
knees and claws.
Horns and fangs
and knees and claws,
Eyes, ears, tails, and paws.
Horns and fangs, 
and knees and claws,
knees and claws!

If I Were a Monster 

If I were a happy monster, 
I’d go “Ha, ha, ha!”
If I were a sad monster, I’d go
“Boo, hoo, hoo!”
If I were a mad monster, 
I’d go Stomp, Stomp, Stomp
If I were a scared monster, 
I’d go “Eek, Eek, Eek!”
But I’m just me, you see, 
so I’ll just read, read, read!

Five Little Monsters

Five little monsters sitting on the floor. 
(hold up 5 fingers)
The first one said, "Let's knock on someone's door." 
The second one said, "Let's act a little scary."
 (show claws)
The third one said, "Why are we so hairy?" 
(shrug shoulders)
The fourth one said, "I hear a funny sound." 
(cup ear)
The fifth one said, "There's no one else around."
(shake head)
Then "WHOOSH" went the wind 
(fling arms to one side)
And "EEK!" someone said. 
(wave hands in the air)
So the five little monsters ran under the bed.
(hold up 5 fingers, hide them under other hand)
